The Hub at Hungerford Library

We are continuing to offer our very popular IT Lessons for beginners of any age. The course consists of a series of 6 one hour, weekly sessions. Each session is 1:1 and is tailored for the needs of the individual student. Don’t be afraid if you know nothing about computers! Our excellent volunteers will take you through whatever you would like to know. Please contact the library on 01488 682660 for further information or to book a place.

Our RhymeTime sessions are on Wednesday mornings at 11:00 for children under 4

We have several groups that meet regularly. Perhaps one will appeal to you!

Craft and Chat takes place every Friday
morning from 10-12. Come along to this free session and bring your knitting or other crafts, enjoy a chat and a cup of tea while sharing
your interests with others.

Art Group meets every Tuesday, 2-4pm. If you are interested in art and would like to share
your skill or learn something new come along.
It is not teacher led, but it is a good opportunity to enjoy your hobby in the company of others.

Our Book Groups meet once a month.

Several of our groups are proving to be very popular and at certain times the library can be very busy; this may mean that some of the areas of the library are not easily accessible. Every effort is made to avoid this happening, but if you find you are unable to reach the books you want, please let one of our staff know so we can help. The popularity of the groups reflects the benefit we are providing to the community and, although we regret the inconvenience to other customers, we feel that the benefits far outweigh this temporary inconvenience.

Are you interested in gardening or looking for a new hobby? Our ‘Gardening club’ meets once a month on the second Friday of the month, 5:30-6:30. Come along to get inspiration and share ideas.

Our ‘Word Play’ sessions, every Friday at 3:45, are available to adults and children over 8 years old, although younger children can participate when accompanied by an adult. We have a wide range of games and activities available such as Scrabble, Boggleslam, Bookchase, Upwords and Wordbits. We have other games available such as chess and jigsaw puzzles for use at any time – just ask at the desk.

WiFi is free to library members.

We have regular half term activities for children and other events for grown-ups too! Check our website or watch for posters in the window.
